Bluejays Gibbons returns to be Blue Jays manager

[QUOTE]The Blue Jays turned back the clock Tuesday by hiring John Gibbons to be their new manager.

Gibbons spent parts of five seasons as Toronto's manager from 2004-08 and will once again assume that role, replacing John Farrell, who left last month for the Red Sox.

The Blue Jays, who did not reveal in their announcement the length of Gibbons' contract, unveiled their new skipper in a news conference at Rogers Centre on Tuesday morning.

"From my standpoint, I don't know that there was anybody better in terms of managing a bullpen, connecting with players, connecting with the front office, holding players accountable -- really everything you want from a manager," general manager Alex Anthopoulos said of Gibbons. "I don't know that there's anybody better to manage a team. I've got more conviction in this hire than any transaction we've made here."/QUOTE]
